Daniel Craig

This week's "Saturday Night Live" didn't have many high points, but one everyone seemed to agree on was the fake commercial for the "Bond 50" collection.

In a classic "SNL" setup, the premise of the pre-taped sketch was that the Blu-ray set included every Bond girl, including ones we may have forgotten. This led to a wonderful string of impersonations from Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer, plus another turn from Fred Armisen as Penny Marshall.

It also allowed Craig to do what he does best: Bond.

Engineer

Who would have guessed that a party for the video release of "Prometheus" would hold answers to the origin of our species? There is undeniable evidence in the photographs that have surfaced from the event at The Beats Store that the Engineers created mankind in their own image, for they also love dropping sick beats.

Prometheus

We hear from sources inside the part that the Engineer provided the tunes for the event. One brave party guest worked up the courage to request a Ke$ha song, but the Engineer promptly ripped off his head.

Thanks to Super Punch for the tip.

Kevin Bacon

The company has developed a new algorithm for their search engine that allows you to determine any actor's Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. IGN brought the hilarious new tool to our awareness, informing us that all you need to do is type in "Bacon Number" and then the actor's name and, viola, you have your answer. And we thought it was cool when we discovered Google calculator would translate numbers into Smoots.

Twilight

Remember that part in "Twilight" when Bella ate a slice of Edward's cake and got really mad because it was his most bestest creation?

No? That might be because we've been watching this new Bad Lip Reading video that reinterprets the first "Twilight" movie," and now we're mixing up the versions.

The hilarious video (via Screen Crush) plugs brand new dialogue into some of the movie's most famous scenes, but you might not notice since the lip movements match up so well.

Fifty Shades

With producers set for "Fifty Shades of Grey" and the casting process heating up, we're guessing that plenty of actors and actresses are going to start throwing their names into the pot to play Christan Grey and Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of the hit erotic novel. The one man we didn't expect to get in on the action? "The League" comedian Paul Scheer.

The actor posted his "audition tape" to College Humor, but it's clear that he wasn't very prepared to read for the part of Christian. After attempting some of the character's more seductive lines, Scheer kept bursting out laughing and finally had to ask, "What is this book about?"

Yoda

With the upcoming election, the people of the United State will exercise their right as citizens and help choose the president of our great nation. But when it comes down to just two parties, don't you ever wish the field of candidates was more diverse?

Well, the folks over at Next Movie have taken care of that with a new series of campaign posters featuring fictional characters from some of your favorite movies.

Odds are that if you've seen a "Savages" trailer, poster or TV spot for Oliver Stone's new ensemble crime thriller, you're well aware that there is a lot going on in this film. There's a star-studded cast, lots of drugs, lots of blood, lots of violence.

In the week leading up to the film's release, we've already covered some of the film's serious subjects, like the stars' thoughts on the film's gratuitous violence and equal opportunity nudity, as well as the leading ladies' argument for why their characters are both motivated by love, not war.

As such, we thought we'd end the week on a humorous note and prep a little quiz for stars Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and John Travolta to see how familiar they were with other Savages in pop culture. The results were entertaining, to say the least.

Despite his foul mouth, anger management issues and promiscuous behavior, Ted the teddy bear, star of the movie "Ted", still has a cute and cuddly factor. He's a stuffed bear, you can't escape a bit of the 'Aww' factor, and he comes from a long line of famous fuzzy celebrities.

When MTV News caught up with Ted's director, Seth MacFarlane, recently, we asked him to compare Ted to other famous celebrity bears, like Snuggles from the Snuggles laundry detergent commercials, '80s toy Teddy Ruxpin, "The Muppets" funnyman Fozzie Bear and the colorful Care Bears.

As was to be expected, Ted and MacFarlane aren't exactly super fans of their famous brethren, but they did have some high praise for one lucky bear.

"Snuggles, what the hell? He's a recluse," he said. "Who the f--- hides out in the goddamn laundry? Sitting in the goddamn laundry all day, who does that? It's f------ creepy."

Abe

By Jessica Marshall

The vampire-slaying exploits of America's 16th president are getting major press this week with the release of the big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling, pseudo-historical novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."

Timur Bekmambetov directs and Benjamin Walker stars in the film, which paints a surprisingly convincing picture of how the President's quest for vengeance against vampires could have shaped our country's history.

All things being equal, Honest Abe couldn't possibly be the only world leader to have supernatural beings (other than skeletons) in his closet. Surely the weird hobbies and strange experiences that others have notoriously had could translate to equally compelling books and films.

Here are five more world leaders and their experiences that lend themselves quite nicely to a tale of fantastical historical fiction.

Draw Something

As you may have heard over the weekend, Ryan Seacrest's production company is developing a game show based on the latest app phenomenon, "Draw Something." The series will pit celebrity contestants and regular folks like you against each other in an interactive game of Pictionary.

If you're anything like us, the news came with a groan and an eye roll, because "Draw Something" obviously should have been adapted as a feature film. With movie producers snapping up the film rights to anything that moves, it's a surprise that no one saw the potential for a live action feature based on the property.

Well, we did, so here are our three pitches for the "Draw Something" movie.
